What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Evil HR lady

No, it's not Ann Austin at The Danville Register and Bee. The evil hr lady works for a Fortune 500 company and blogs about human resource issues and questions on the side. Evil HR Lady is the name of her blog. Good blog. Check it out. www.evilhrlady.com.

I've invited her over for a look. If you're her - welcome. If you're not...welcome anyway!

Blogging about evil employers is an emerging trend and I of course am doing everything I can to encourage the trend. Important things to remember - document everything. Tape recordings, memos, emails, notes and other official documentation helps so it's not just a "he said she said" debate.

Having several lawyer friends who are willing to read the blog from time to time and comment in between hysterical outbursts of "Who are these guys? Don't they realize this goes to court it's just a matter of how many zeros the jury wants to put on the check?"

I'm not sure why people in 12 countries outside the U.S. enjoy reading this but I'm glad to see you here too! Not all American media companies are this bad - just most of them.

We've learned over the past few days that companies (mostly run by old white men) don't really care about diversity or racism. They don't have to. They're only worried about preventing lawsuits. Well - what are the chances with this blog that there's a good chance a two-hour diversity training class consisting of HR reading some papers, punching in a video and leaving the room is really "training"? C'mon....

To the minister who commented that The Danville Register & Bee's CEO paid for the sins in the Danville newsroom and Media General with his son's death by parachute failure is ummmm...interesting. Comments anyone?

Kansas is a long way for the church to travel, but I understand some Westboro church members don't think this blog is "strong" enough. Sorry guys. But feel free to post anything you find here on your website!

It's just getting more interesting....

You are off the deep end. Lay off people's tragically killed sons. "why people in 12 countries outside the U.S. enjoy reading this" = because you are totally wack, and everyone loves crazy people.
